: Bandana Tewari, contributing editor of the Indian ڤog, talking about the reasons why the teachings of a man distinguished country like Gandhi closely related to the world of fashion
While the participants competed in the talk about the “conscious luxury”, a theme that revolves around Conde Nast World Conference of His Excellency this year, played Bandana Tewari editor to contribute to the magazine Indian ڤog on the chord of humility when he stepped up to the podium, where he stunned the hall tale poignant Mahatma Gandhi and models which put them through fashion.
Said Tiwari: “Gandhi was a deep relationship with fashion,” she said: “I did not find another example in the history of politics bears such a resemblance between global politics and fashion.”
Commenting on Gandhi’s philosophy Tiwari says clothes were an essential part of the philosophy of Gandhi since his early days in the United Kingdom when he was a student, looked like a young Englishman very dress up, until he found himself treated on the basis of ethnic identity and being abused in South Africa (where he began his search for the truth in the face of ignorance and attention to self-sufficiency – or what is known as “Soadasha” [a movement to rely on local goods turned India into a kind of economic boycott and has achieved remarkable success in the fight against British rule]), and then return to India to lead Kadi movement (ie: cotton spun manually), when “asked For the country to burn all the clothes made in the laboratory and that the people made his clothes by himself, where he lit the whole country protests. “
And she says: “clothing was a central part in the internal search for the truth, in his robe and wear it developed rituals and principles – but how it can be applied by the high – end fashion companies conscious manner?”.
The answer lies in enabling the manufacturer literal, according to Tiwari, stop flaunting the slogan “hand-made”, without asking about the source of the dress, which carries the logo.
Tiwari said the participants, mostly executives of companies upscale: “we have nearly 11 million people make beautiful things manually every day – and more along the Silk Road. If Tqoumoua empowering them and give them a chance of creativity, you will lose this character and skills. We have forgotten to go back thanks skilled workers around the world, who invent the most beautiful products at all of the signs that you Temtlkunha. you can enter a human touch in light of what could become a harmony between the innovative designer and producer – and certainly, is that Gandhi approach towards luxury. “
She Tiwari: “luxury-conscious also revolves around the stand before the impact of the luxury industry on the environment,” she quoted an interview with Gandhi: “Non-violence is not a dress we put it and Nkala when we like it, its roots lie in our hearts, and should be part inseparably of our being.”
She added: “I would like to ask the designers to think slowly, the matter is not about quickly invent things, but credible and time,” and continued: “The belief in the philosophy of considering a decisive factor, to ask ourselves responsibly, and adopt an ethical policy. There are 20 new dress [each] We, me, and the rest of the planet’s population every year, so maybe you should go back to what was said by Gandhi since three-quarters of a century ago: “The world has enough to meet the needs of everyone, but not enough to irrigate the greed of everyone.”
When she finished her speech Tiwari and the bow greeting to the public, the few of them afflicted with amazement and confusion about the relevance of the teachings of the world of luxury.
